Geologists say at least eight separate fissures remain active along Kilauea's lower east rift zone, creating advancing flows that continue to claim or threaten homes and roads.

The Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency said residents should avoid the area due to the increase of volcanic gases and vog emissions in areas downwind of the vents.

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reported this morning that a new fissure 24 opened.

Lava from Hawaii's spewing Kilauea Volcano edged closer to a geothermal plant on Saturday - escalating fears of a deadly hydrogen sulphide explosion.

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency lava from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano has reached a geothermal power plant on Big Island that has wells containing toxic gas.

There are now more than 20 fissures associated with Kilauea, and they've fountained lava that has poured across the Hawaiian landscape and destroyed 41 homes and dozens of other structures.

Contingency plans have been made for a possible helicopter evacuation of up to 1,000 residents in a coastal area south of the fissures should their last exit route be blocked by lava or become unsafe because of gaping cracks, County of Hawaii officials said.

More residents in some sections of the Leilani Estates neighbourhood were ordered to immediately evacuate shortly before 8 p.m.

Its been three weeks since the volcano has erupted on the big island, shooting molten rocks and oozing lava.

"For me, it's just visual, " he said.

Scientists believe the volcanic activity may be a precursor to a major eruption similar to the one that shook the island in the mid-1920s.

An incredible timelapse video has emerged showing lava from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano invading a backyard as it now enters its fourth week of destructive eruptions. At this time there is no hydrogen sulfide detected.
